said, which is letting the states and localities lead because they know what's best when it comes to their state. and you're seeing that right now, whether it's governor bob mcdonnell in virginia, governor christie or maybe bloomberg in new york who are saying, hey, we know exactly what we need in our state or in the case of new york city, we know what needs to get done, how to do it best. we know where everything is -- >> but isn't that essentially the way fema works? >> hold on, chris. what the governor said and what is -- his point is, is that the federal government should let states lead where they know best, in localities where they know best. getting the federal government in the middle of a disaster situation where immediate response is crucial, helping those in need and having firsthand local knowledge about where things are, where assets are prestationed and how to do it most effectively without the red tape and bureaucracy of the government is probably the most effective way to help people in need. >> well, but that's the way it works now because in consultation with the

landfall damage assessments. there are currently over 5500 residents in state and local shelters as of our latest count. we are working to stand up shelters as we learn of more needs to the five supported shelters, two at rutgers, two at monmouth and one in morris township, new jersey. we are in the process of opening a sixth shelter at the rutgers athletic center that can support nearly 2,000 people. we want to make sure people have enough food and water for a while which is why we are working with the salvation army and the american red cross to bring in mobile kitchens to serve thousands of meals. boxed lunches are being delivered to state shelters today. we are using fema food and water resources. the national guard has deployed soldiers and airman at the woodbridge armories for support of state-supported shelter facilities if needed. there are a vast number of new jerseyians today without power. in fact, we currently have 2.4 million new jersey households without power. this is just, so you understand, the order of magnitude here. this is twice the number of impacted households as hur

102 local headquarters, romney has 48. but senator, in the end does the number of offices matter as much as if your people are excited about you? >> well, you have to get people excited about what you stand for and what you're doing and what you will do but it's also the case that politics is like one of these icebergs with a substantial amount of it upd the water that you can't see. if you're well organized and able to get all of those persuaded you're the right candidate to the follows vote ate big deal. the evidence suggests that the obama campaign has a fabulous ground game in all of these swing states. so, you know, it is a close race no question about that. i think in the end the numbers show now and i think in the end they will show that the obama ground game made a very big difference. >> john do you think that the romney camp underspent and underemphasized the ground game? >> i don't think so. i think that what happened in the last election is senator mccain had a lousy ground game especially in ohio. the romney campaign has picked it up, gone back to what george bush di

trusted individual in most local markets. so that news show is very important. so that's why candidates go to town, they do those events, they try to make the morning and evening news so they can have an impression because people only believe half of what they see in tv ads. >> joe, what do you think? yesterday julian tep from the financial times was on and she was talking about $500 million still that's left to spend on negative ads. do you think that that could have a big impact with the final 32 days of this campaign? >> well, i do. this is going to be a very, very tight race, as you can see. i think the numbers -- the next polling numbers that come out will show the race is tightening. there will be a real fight for the undecideds. part of the way you win the fight is you at the them what you're going to do but you also have to beat up the other guy. that's part of the sad reality of presidential politics. money is going to play an important factor coming up. >> i'm going to disagree with joe a little bit. i don't think there are that many undecideds and, second, i don't know that the

a statement it was a great opportunity to highlight the importance of volunteerism and local clarities. but jackie, is this something people expect, kind of contrived at campaign spots some does it make them look bad sort of reinforcing some people's opinion that they don't really truly get what it means to be middle class or even certainly poor in america? >> these are tricky to pull off. i mean, this isn't necessarily as damaging as the tank incident. but the photo-opes can be tricky. when you have charities and politics, it's a tough terrain for them. so maybe there should have been more homework done, but, yeah, this turned into a pretty sticky situation. >> jackie, michael, thank you both both for coming on. >>> also new security concerns regarding the pakistani girl shot by the taliban. police say they stopped two people claimed to be family members from getting in. police now believe they were just well wishers. meantime, the hospital's director says malala saw six specialists overnight. she is making a good recovery, but is not out of the woods yet. pakistan has reportedly anno

, president of ask me local 127. thanks for joining us. good morning. >> how are you? >> i'm well. that video has more than a million views on youtube so far. the message is pretty harsh. do you think it's fair? >> i think it, richard hayes is speaking from the heart. i think it's more than fair. we think that mitt romney is out of touch with regular working folk like richard hayes. and he is doesn't care about the 47%. he wants to gut public workers. but we're not the problem. to us, the problem is these big tax policies that gives breaks for the super rich. so we just wanted to go and show what a regular working class person picks up trash every day, very hard job. and is representative of the struggles that are going on today for many, many workers in america. and we want to defend the middle class. >> well, when mitt romney was governor of massachusetts, he spent a series of days doing jobs with people who were regular public workers. he actually wrote about it in his book. he recalled how he collected trash for a day. he said people didn't seem to notice him. this was the quote. it was a

about the home mortgage, college credit, doesn't want to tell you about state and local taxes. he fakes it. you have a man running for president on the central issue of our time and he's not being straight with american people. >> he is. he does have specifics. he talks about his specific plans. he is going to open up small business to hire people. he's going to stop the over-regulation. he's going to keep taxes low on eryone that makes $250,000 or less. and he's not going to change the deductions for those people. >> but t nonpartisan grou saidthbo lnight, you wealthy a multibilli dollar tax break. becausehen-s it's the richer paying less. independent analysis have suggested the numbers don't add up. >> i heard president obama say last night, well, he's talking about increasing spending and then lowering taxes. and mitt romney has not talked about increasing spending. he is talking about getting the deficits down. and he's talking about lowering taxes on the middle class so that the money will go out in job creation. it is job creation that mitt romney is focused on and yet the preside

. and i'm wondering, steve, is this just great news for local tv stations? what's going on here? anything? is there so much money they'll spend it anywhere they can? >> this whole campaign has been good for broadcasters and television. but i think spending money on ads in pennsylvania and michigan is a waste of money. if they want to waste their money there, more power to them. barack obama is going to win those two states. i think at the end of these campaigns now, there's a law of diminishing returns. each side has so much money, i don't think money is going to be the deciding factor. you have two candidates with very different values and visions for the future. and people will figure that out and i think some of the spending is going to be a waste of money. >> you know, chris, when you look at those blue states you just mentioned pennsylvania, maine, it's not at the presidential level. it's about the senatorial level. who would have thought bob casey in pennsylvania would be running neck in neck with a republican opponent? >> these are presidential ads they're buying. >> but those coat
